Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
As there is no notification if a connection is available, i see a “synced” on the top right but nothing happens. I am pretty sure this is because of my company network. I can’t ask my admin to unblock the app or to open some ports for me, so this is not a solution for a lot of people.
Describe the solution you’d like
Add the possibility to add a proxy. For example for signal i created a .cmd with:
set "HTTP_PROXY=http://proxy:3128" set "HTTPS_PROXY=%HTTP_PROXY%" set "ALL_PROXY=%HTTP_PROXY%" START "" "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Programs\signal-desktop\Signal.exe" --start-in-tray
or for Element Desktop a ,cmd with
START "" "%LOCALAPPDATA%\riot-web\Element.exe" --proxy-server=http://proxy:3128
Later on something in the UI would be nice as well, but the ability to do something like that would be plenty for now.
@Yoda6 Maybe thats something for you as well?
